April 22, 2017


Friendship & Acquaintances. Friends come and go, some people come in and out of your life, and some stick around forever. Either way, when the people who matter to you drop off the radar or treat you in a way that suggests that they don’t hold that friendship as dear as you might, then it […]

Chapter 3. My first University lecture.

April 21, 2017


My first University lecture. In the same week as Death and Micro Romance, I delivered my first student lectures at a university in London.
